Paragraph Analysis
Body of the Speech: Paragraphs 2-5 2 In this part, Churchill concentrated on the purpose of his speech, i.e. to inspire the people all over the country, men and women, old and young, to maintain the relentless spirit of this nation and to fight for the final victory of this great war.
Q1: What did Churchill mean by saying "we must learn to be equally good at what is short and sharp and what is long and tough"? A1: By saying this he meant to make the British people fully aware that they should not only be able to fight and win short and quick battles but also be ready to fight and win hard and enduring wars.
Q2: Why did Churchill quote Kipling as saying "treat those two impostors just the same"? A2: Because he tried to enlighten the British people from another perspective by implying that they should treat triumphs and disasters of the war in the same way. Sometimes triumphs were just overt phenomena, which could mislead people to a wrong conception. And disasters were not as frightening as they seemed to be, and we should not feel discouraged. The massive air force of Nazi Fascists was strong in appearance, but it could be defeated sooner or later.
Q3: What lesson had they learnt in the past ten months? A3: The lesson learnt throughout the past ten months was that when facing great difficulties, one should never give in. With the reasonable combination of imagination and courage, the British people could overcome any kind of difficulties and smash any attack of the mighty enemy.
Q4: What is the change in the widespread mood referred to in Paragraph 5? A4: Ten months ago, Hitler's air forces struck Britain and the whole nation was thrown into disorder and unease. Many other nations thought that this nation would be conquered soon just as what had happened to France. But when they gathered in the same school ten months later, they had accumulated, in addition to better armament, sufficient strength and confidence to fight against the Nazi troops.
